If the tax that accrued to the state from the purchase of tangible personal property or services during the preceding month is remitted to the department after the twelfth day of the month and on or before the twentieth day of the month in which remittance is due, 0.50% of the tax collected at a rate of 4% for the preceding monthly period, but not to exceed $15,000.00 of the tax collected for that month.
